Q: How do i get the Feb box as a 1 x gift?Asked by Ruthanne C., February 2021
To get just one box as a gift you can place an order for the monthly mercantile box. You will be notified next month, asking if you want to renew. You can cancel at that time, if you just want the single box. Thanks for your interest!
Q: Package has yet to arrive. Was shown to be in transit Dec. 11th, said to arrive by Christmas (the latest), then no movement after 15th. Is there any way to find out exactly what's going on with order?Asked by Jennifer, December 2020
Thanks for reaching out. The movement of packages has been less than reliable this season.
Please email me your order number and I will check on it's location from my end. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but once it leaves our facility it is out of our control.
Q: Good Morning! We ordered 5 Seasonal Mercantile boxes on 12/03 - Christmas presents for family. We have not yet received notification that they were mailed. Will those boxes be there in time for ChristAsked by Stacy J., December 2020
Thanks for your question. We have shipped your orders. They left our facility on Dec 9th. If you check the tracking information on your Cratejoy account you can see that they are in transit, or out for delivery. They should arrive by Christmas. The postal service is a little slower than usual with the increased number of packages this year. Thanks!
I love subsc boxes but stopped them because literally nothing was made in USA. Imagine my joy when I found this box AND I live in Charleston, WV so this is my Appalachian heritage. Why did I not know about this before?? Loved my first box and will support JQ Dickson as long as I can!
Thanks for taking the time to review us, Alicia
I'm so glad you love our products. We work hard to find the best Appalachian made food, crafts and home goods.
I subscribed to this box 3 months ago; and I can say with all honesty, I absolutely love this box. The shipping is so quick. The items are not your normal "sample" sizes. These are full sized items and high quality stuff I may add. I do get excited every month when I know my box is being mailed to me. I have not been disappointed. I would recommend this company and this subscription.
Thank you so much for taking the time to send such a rave review into Cratejoy. We love to hear how our customers like their boxes. Cheer! Nancy, owner
Everything was fabulous!
This was a gift for my Mom and she loved it. She's in FL now but from SE KY so she was pleased with the taste of home. We'll be keeping this subscription for sure.
Love this box, everything is full sized and quite a variety. Have already purchased more items from the various merchants. Great stuff!
3 month order of Appalachian Mercantile as a gift. Recipient is thrilled. Excellent variety, good quality products, unique regional fare
Would have preferred less food products.
Quite pleased with everything this box offers - we will use every item! Looking forward to the February box.
I purchased a 3 month subscription for myself. I have received Dec / Jan & I am in love with this Box! The customer service, shipping, presentation & products are100% !
I may just keep gifting myself this for a long time :)
thank you Appalachian Mercantile for a great product & giving me a little sunshine monthly during COVID!
Thanks for your glowing review, Susanne! We love it when the right people connect to our subscription. I hope you keep enjoying it for many months to come.

There was a little bit of a bumpy road when it came to the December box, but Nancy made sure that any issues were taken care of and that there were no worries with the box going forward. I had chosen to cancel my subscription with everything going on, but after the great customer service shown I'm giving Mercantile another go. Thank you so much for not leaving us customers in the dark. Can't wait for January's box to get to its destination.
Thanks for taking the time to give us a good review. We know there are a lot of choices out there and we appreciate that you are giving us another chance. I wish shipping hadn't been so unpredictable during December. Things should be on a much smoother road this year!
